Cruise ships are floating hotels and have a range of roles in entertainment, hospitality, marketing, management, health and beauty, guest relations, and management and maintenance of the ship.
The travel benefits of these positions are a major attraction. Office or land-based jobs at headquarters or port may still offer travel privileges. The recruitment process is highly competitive, and employers and recruitment companies will assess language skills, experience and qualifications. The successful applicant may be appointed to a tipping (small basic plus specified tip amounts) or non tipping job. Tipping jobs have direct contact with guests, and require native English as a language as well as the required experience. Many positions may offer commission, or other perks, like inclusive flights to port.
The work can be demanding, with long hours and all weathers. Contracts are typically 6 months long, with a break of 6-8 weeks before renewal. Earnings can be good, with the opportunity to meet and befriend people from all over the world. Accommodation, whilst free, is shared. Average starting salaries vary from £200 per week to £2000 per month, but management positions and senior placements like head chefs on luxury liners may be offered upwards of £45k plus benefits.
